Owner Max Muscle Natomas & Woodland
Education: California State University Chico, B.S. Business Administration
Certification: Certified Sports Nutrition Specialist
Dianne Carlos was a franchise rookie when she and her partner opened their first Max Muscle Sports Nutrition franchise in Natomas in 2006.
Despite having little to no knowledge of the brand at the time, Dianne was excited about getting involved. Then, about 5 months after opening, her partner passed away and, in his absence, Dianne had to simultaneously cope with the tragedy while stepping up to quickly learn the product side of the business. In 2011, Dianne defied her own expectations and opened her second Max Muscle in Woodland all on her own. Today, she remains the sole owner of both locations and can’t imagine living without the products or the customers that have entered her life. She sometimes thinks she found her passion to help others with their health and nutrition goals by accident, other times she thinks everything she’s experienced has led her to this exact place.
Dianne loves a good pick-yourself-up-and-never-give-up story. People who keep moving forward even though the cards seem stacked against them inspire her. They have a mental toughness and focus that she respects. She admires people who reject a victim mentality and figure out that they are in charge of their results and no one else. Having struggled with weight and body image herself, she feels confident that she can offer sound nutritional guidance to help her clients achieve their goals.
Certified Nutrition Coach
In 2007 I walked into Max Muscle Natomas as a “skinny twig”. I was 6’2” and 150 pounds. I had been a customer of other nutrition stores but what was different about Max Muscle was the advice and guidance that I got, they even encouraged me to come back to update them on my progress. About four years ago, I started working at the store and now get to pass on what I’ve learned to others.
Early 2012, I decided to try a competition diet and enlisted the help of former co-worker (now Max Muscle franchisee) Jamie Free. Jamie sent me a weekly eating plan by email. I started my contest preparation at 220 pounds. After 12 weeks on the plan (weighing in at a depleted 185), I competed in my first physique show and placed 4th out of 14 at the 2012 NPC Tahoe Show.
The products that have helped me through the years are Triple Whey Chocolate, CX3, Max ACM, Max Compete, Full Blown XXX, Nitro 2, Pro BCAA, Max ARM, Max Liquicarn & 2TX. Going through this process has definitely made me a better nutrition coach for my customers. I couldn’t be where I am today without the help of Dianne Carlos at Max Muscle Natomas, and my nutrition coach, Jamie Free for getting me through the contest prep.
